2 police officers, 3 others dead in Las Vegas shooting

Associated Press Published:

Authorities say two suspects shot and killed two police officers at a Las Vegas eatery Sunday before fatally shooting a third person and killing themselves inside a nearby Walmart.

Gov. Brian Sandoval issued a statement saying he was devastated by the murders of the two officers and an "innocent bystander."

Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield said the spree began late Sunday morning when a man and woman walked into CiCi's Pizza and shot two officers who were eating lunch.

One of the suspects yelled, "This is a revolution," but the motive for the shooting remains under investigation, Hadfield said.

He said the suspects then fled to the Walmart across the street, where they fatally shot a person inside and then killed themselves in an apparent suicide pact.

The names of the suspects and victims and their cause of death will be released by the Clark County coroner's office.
